Skyteam has partnered with Global Lounge Network (GLN) to open its first joint lounge at Sao Paulo-Guarulhos International airport.

Located in Terminal 2, the 700 sqm lounge has seating for 180 guests and is open 24/7. It is available to Skyteam Elite Plus members, as well as first and business class customers flying on services operated by Aeromexico and Air Europa.

The lounge was constructed with sustainability in mind, using renewable low-emission materials, smart technology to manage lighting and water-saving devices in bathrooms and showers.

Guests can order from an à la carte menu via a QR code system, as well as barista-style coffee brewed using Brazilian beans. A buffet of international hot and cold options is also available for breakfast, lunch and dinner along with a selection of sparkling, red and white wines, spirits, beers and soft drinks.

Skyteam and GLN’s partnership began in 2017 with the opening of a lounge in Vancouver, followed by facilities in Istanbul and Santiago de Chile.

“Global Lounge Network is excited to expand our relationship with Skyteam in this new joint lounge product which we believe will open the door for many new lounge destinations for Skyteam members around the world, maintaining the quality of service expected by our customers.”
